Who is Jesus?
An excellent question, especially if you are sincerely searching for the answer. It must be recognized that, for anyone who already has his or her mind made up against Jesus, no amount evidence will prove convincing. On the other hand, for those of you who honestly seek an answer, the evidence speaks for itself.
The Greek word for “fish” (ίχθύς) was used by the early church as a creedal acrostic, providing a sampling of 1st century Christology: Iesous Christos Theou Huios Soter, literally, “Jesus Christ, God’s Son, Savior.” Here, four essential marks of the identity and ministry of this man are seen: his humanity (“Jesus”), his Messianic role (“Christ”), his Divinity (“God’s Son”), and his redemptive work (“Savior”).
